Dedicated to raising awareness of ALL tick borne diseases, offering support, and providing referrals for information, research, and healthcare choices.

From Discover magazine.

Earlier this year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that Lyme disease is 10 times more prevalent than previously reported, with some 300,000 sufferers across the U.S. As a result, more true Lyme cases should be recognized in the Northeast, Midwest and West. But much of the United States, including the Southeast, has been left out of the equation despite emerging evidence that Lyme or a Lyme-like infection may be present there as well.

Plot where you think you encountered an infected tick and in 100 words or less, tell us about your experience (or your pet’s experience) with tick-borne illness, including any diagnosis, symptoms and what kind of tick it was.
